Oh no, not again…? :-)

24 Nov

Most of this year was spent planning the wedding of daughter #3.  That successfully carried out Ralph and I thought we would have some time to relax, catch up on the farm, and enjoy the holidays.  hahahahahahahahaha

We got home from wedding #3 and barely unpacked when boyfriend #4 decided it was time to pop the question.

Two weeks TO THE DAY after wedding #3, daughter #4 became engaged!

Lord help me, please!

Hahahahaha     hahahahaha     hahahahaha

Hahahahahahahaha     hahahhahahahahahaha

Hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaha    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Okay, I feel better.

We’ve had some pretty difficult trials and tribulations in the past with the boys/men our daughters have chosen to date/get involved with.  My biggest fear has always been that they would end up with someone who treated them badly or abused them in some way.  That is of course every parents nightmare.  And I suspect we came close a time or two.

I don’t know what we did right, or what we didn’t do wrong but somehow, someway, all 4 of our precious babies have ended up with men that are perfectly suited for each of them.  As an added bonus, they all fit in, compliment and complete our family!

So even tho I am once again in wedding mode, things I want to get done on the farm will take a backseat to another wedding, and my job title will continue to be wedding planner instead of fledgling farmer………

I couldn’t be happier!

Lord have Mercy, Praise Jesus and Thank you my Heavenly Father, it is done!!!!!!!

October 6, 2012 our beautiful, intelligent, warm, loving, compassionate, strong minded, little bit geeky, rural-country raised daughter was married to a sweet, handsome, zombie loving-game playing, also little bit geeky, Texas A & M, city raised metro boy.  I just want to say, “It’s about dang time!” and, “Welcome to the family!”

They are now in Jamaica enjoying their honeymoon.  It will drive me insane until their feet are on American soil once again.  That would be Texas of course, don’t ya know.  I don’t know why, but I just can’t stand when my girls are not where I can get my hands on them, if necessary.  It’s not that I’m a control freak mom cause Lord knows I’m not.  It’s just the whole health, safety, protective thing that all mom’s and dad’s have in their head.  The night before the wedding, this particular daughter accidentally cut her hand while attempting to cut a price tag off of a sun hat.  Left hand of course, between the thumb and index finger.  Not that big but could have used a stitch or some glue.  Well ya know, at 3 am in the morning when you don’t have insurance ya clean it good, stick a band-aid on and go about your merry business.  Here I am thinking about a 1/4 inch gapped open boo boo swimming around in the nasty waters of Jamaica.  It’s a little bitty thing but it keeps me from worrying about all the other things one has to worry about where your child is on the other side and within spitting distance of Cuba.

Please, please, please, please, please do not leave the resort cause there really are gorillas in the jungle, and I’m not talking about the kind that eat bananas!  Why is it that all the cool places to go on your honeymoon are surrounded by machine gun-toting idiots?

So, I’m back here on the farm and I’ve been told to take it easy this week.  Really? LOL Okay.

I was out-of-town for only 4 days, in which time the temperature dropped 30 degrees!  We’ve got 6 birds that need to be butchered, a coop that needs to be cleaned out, sterilized and converted into a duck pen.  Arrangements need to be made to pick up the 625 gallon water tank we are getting to convert to a duck pond.  The vegetable garden needs row covers to prolong the growing period.  The garlic arrived while I was gone so I’ve got to get that in the ground.  In three weeks the apple, peach and plum trees, along with the raspberry and blackberry bushes and the muscadine grape vines will arrive for a total of 20 plants that need planting.  LOL, at the moment I have no idea “where” they are going.  And they are all due to arrive the same week the hubby doodle is due to go on his next great fishing trip.  Won’t that be fun!

Life on the farm is a little laid back and damn busy all at the same time.
